A U.S. Embassy spokesman identified the man as Warren Weinstein, but would not give any further details about his background or the abduction."
so what the fuck is this guy up to, anyway? by the embassy's refusal to disclose any info about his "background," it's damn well obvious what his job was.
we in the USA seem to think that sovereignty and things like borders and national security only apply to our sovereignty and borders and security -- and pay no heed to those of other countries.
when these guys with american flags tattooed on their asses go about in countries who are tired of US "help" trying to stir up and destabilize the situation as part of the US government's divide and conquer strategy, if they get tore off, they deserve to suffer the consequences.
that might help cure the US public's mistaken opinion that we're #1, and these foreigners ought to do as we say, not as we do...
